The NFL’s Arizona Cardinals have given $10,000 to “Keep AZ Drug Free,” a group that opposes AZ Prop 203 – which would legalize medical marijuana in the state.
Cardinals team President Michael Bidwill is listed by the anti-203 group as one of the main Valley leaders opposed to medical marijuana legalization. USA Basketball Chairman Jerry Colangelo also is part of the Keep AZ Drug Free group’s efforts.
Well, how thoughtful of them. They don’t want to “let chronically ill or severe pain patients buy small amounts of pot from state licensed clinics with a doctor’s approval.” How utterly sickening.
Where do people like this get their nerve? To think you have the right to deny sick people medicine comes from an arrogance that is dangerous when it is possessed by people with a lot of money. If you live in AZ, boycott your NFL team every chance you get. If the stands are empty, so will the coffers.
